Remember Cher from Clueless with that rotating cyclone of a wardrobe? That was enviable. The idea of a well-endowed wardrobe might seem like an arresting fantasy to fall under, but in reality, as time-starved individuals, a wardrobe likening to Cher Horowhitz's would pose to be a stumbling block in making quick snappy outfit choices.

As soon as the next morning sun rises, there's hardly time to stomach breakfast, let alone do a transfer of your long list of accoutrements to another bag. Which is where the need for multifaceted pieces come in. Fossil's Carmen Shopper bags certainly aren't your average totes. Because they aren't just roomy structures to hold your entire day, they go together with any outfit for any occasion, while adding a midas touch of embellishment to complete your look.

The magic of a well-constructed tote is not lost, especially in this day and age. Where women simply can't hold their iPads in a tiny clutch and don't just have one appointment to scurry off to. We carry all the essentials that apply to a day loaded with business meetings as well that romantic date by the bar. With colourways of a yellow leather-suede number, an aloe green silhouette, and a suede vision in brown, The Carmen Shopper totes can hang from the crook in your elbow, to the palm of your hand, or rest on your shoulder whenever you need to go hands-free. More importantly, they exceed expectations of merely function — and break into enabling a fun, fuss free wardrobe switch.
